-15 now here.....glad I'm not a deer
This is basically a typical Aussie Summer although having said that we've had milder Summers as well where it's been around 35C or 40C for a month or so and then drops back to around 30C and maybe 35C before going into a cold wet Winter.Jeez Kevin, 50c is 122F. You must be trying to keep up with our summer temps. I've worked outside under lamps at 10PM and it's still 120F. The rocks of South Texas can help a lot in the winter but brutal in the summer. They makes great radiants. It's an overcast 61F here now at 6:15pm. We've yet to have a frost. Bad side, not having any freezing weather means you won't be able to spray enough insecticide to kill all of the bugs. I wish we could get some of what the folks up north are getting. Farmers Almanac so far has missed our winter. It's supposed to be "stingy" here. So far, I'm still cutting grass in shorts and T Shirt. Mowed the neighbors yard yesterday in shorts and T Shirt. When we have weather like this usually means a dry spring and summer. Considering all of the folks moving to the area, there will be water restrictions/rationing early. Our water comes from underground aquifers.
